PhotoHunt ~Ginormous

The PhotoHunt for today is 'Ginormous'
I think of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence . . . It is the heart of the city and you can see it from any side street.
This Amazing building was completed in 1436 (more or less).
I love to sit with a glass of wine in the shadow of the Baptistery and watch the sunset glisten off the millions of mosaic tiles.
The dome was completed in 1436 after 16 years of construction. (there is a fascinating program on the building... but I couldn't find a link to it) The marble facade was completed in the 1800's. You can see a small section below the dome that was not covered, to this day it still looks like the original building.

It is funny . . . but I have never been inside. This year, I am standing in that line.

Happy Hunting y'all~
